An .htaccess file is a text file that features directives which tell a server how to act in particular events. It needs to be placed into the folder where these directives should be carried out. Many script-driven applications employ this sort of a file to perform efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, in particular. You can use this sort of a file with customized content too and do quite a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or particular sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will appear instead of the server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a different web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you will have far better control over your online presence.
.htaccess Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages feature an .htaccess generator tool, which is easy enough to be used by people without previous experience. You'll be able to access it through your Hepsia CP and take advantage of an easy-to-use interface to enable any option you'd like. When you pick the folder where our system will create the .htaccess file, you only need to check the boxes next to the options that you want to activate, then save the changes and you will be all set. The only thing you will have to input by hand will be a URL - if you wish to use the .htaccess file to forward one of your domains/subdomains to a different address or if you would like to use custom made error pages. Our platform will also allow you to set the PHP version that a site will use by adding an .htaccess file in its root folder, regardless if your account in general uses a different version.
